ASOS | October Wishlist!

October Wishlist

Anybody that knows me knows that I love to save money. Even when I have a lot of money... I'm more inclined to buy something on sale than not on sale. I would probably still buy make-up from the pharmacy even if I was a millionaire (although I would be more inclined to splurge on high-end products...)

I've been browsing the Asos beauty section and it seems that a lot of their products (especially Bourjois) is cheaper online with free shipping than it is at my local Priceline. So I've put together a few of my favourite products that I've found on there since I'm going to be buying a few within the next few days. Not all of them because I found quite a few but I will be buying a few and will update my blog as soon as they arrive on the new products and what I think of them! It's also 10% off for students!

This is in order of Brand as well :)


The first two things I found were the Healthy Mix Foundation and a limited edition vintage Blusher in Rose Amber. I've heard quite a few good things about the Healthy Mix foundation so I thought I'd give it a go. I also own one of the little round pot blushers and I'm absolutely in love with it so I thought.. why not own another? Especially for $11.78, that's a real bargain in my eyes. The last thing from Bourjois that I would like to try is the Bourjois ASOS Double-ended Eyeliner and Eraser. I have heard literally nothing about this product but it seems helpful although I am not sure if I will purchase it yet.

Barry M

I have never seen Barry M anywhere in Australia so I'm assuming you can't get it here but these are the products I would love to try but am still not sure about it since I've never even swatched anything on my hands.

The first thing is the Natural Glow Shadow & Blush Palette which looks quite similar to the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette which I have wanted for a while now but haven't been able to purchase so I think this would be a good alternative to that. The other product from Barry M I would like to try is the Lip Paint in Dolly Pink. I have been looking for a pink like this in stores and I haven't been able to find one that I absolutely loved but this one looks amazing so I'm thinking about this one but again, I don't know the brand so I'm unsure.

Models Own

I love the idea of a Beauty Blender sponge but hate the idea of a $30 sponge. So, when I saw this Model's Own Acorn Sponge set I was intrigued and excited. I don't think the quality of these sponges will be up to the Beauty Blender standard (I haven't seen the Models Own sponges reviewed) but I do think it's a better alternative and it's $20 less and you get 2 sponges.

Rimmel London

I feel like Rimmel is a really affordable brand, even in Australia, but ASOS appears to make it even more affordable so there are a few things I would like to purchase.

There are 2 lipsticks on my list and the first one is the Lasting Finish Lipstick in Nude Pink, I don't have a lot of nudes because throughout the past few years I've really loved bright pinks but I'm starting to like the uh nude side of life. In terms of make-up anyway. The other lipstick I really want is the Moisture Renew Lipstick in Soft Coral, I saw the colour and fell in love and added it to my wishlist - that sums up my decision making process on that specific product. The last thing from Rimmel is just the Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Liner. My Australis eyeliner that I currently use is running out so I'm in need of a new one and the Scandaleyes range is pretty good I have to say so I'd like to try out the eyeliner.

That concludes my ASOS wishlist. I will be purchasing a few products but not all of them because I don't think my bank account would appreciate that very much.

Have you tried these products and what do you think of them?


  1. Lovely selections! I'd definitely choose the Healthy Mix Serum over the original Healthy Mix though :) The round pot blushes and the Barry M lipsticks are great :D

  2. I didn't even realise there were two different formulations! Maybe that's why it's $11? haha. I love Bourjois blusher! It's my favourite right now I can't stop using it. I think I will try the Barry M lipstick, I just find it hard to try something that I haven't seen in real life :P
